For Deaf and Dumb.
According to all the information , re
ports and estimates obtainable , there
are in Nebraska a large number of deaf
children not in school. Many parents
of deaf children permit them to grow up
in ignorance , not knowing that it is pos
sible for them to receive an education ,
or that the state provides such education
as freely for the deaf as for the hearing.
We take this opportunity to call our
readers' attention to the fact that Ne
braska has a school for the deaf and
dumb , located at Omaha. That the
school is absolutely free for the deaf and
dumb of Nebraska. That pupils 'deaf
or dumb to such an extent that they
cannot acquire an education in the pub
lic schools , are entitled to admission into
this institution.
The school occupies six large brick
buildings , located upon large and spa
cious grounds , about five miles northwest
from the postoffice , but within the Oma
ha city limits. Twenty teachers are
employed to give instruction in the liter-
nrjr , articulation , art and industrial
It is the earnest desire of the manage
ment to bring into this institution every
deaf or dumb boy or girl that may be
entitled to the benefits of an education
Tax-Payer. Take Notice !
Your personal tax lor the year 1899
has become delinquent , and is now
drawing ten per cent interest. .
Your personal tax should be paid
promptly each year by YOU and EVERY
OTHER TAX-PAYER. The sooner it is
paid after delinquency , the less it is , and
the better satisfied are both yourself and
the treasurer.
An active effort will be made to keep
the financial condition of the county up
to its present high standard. Forcing
the collection of the tax is neither a
pleasure to the tax-payer nor to the col
lector. Please attend to this matter
NOW. Yours very truly ,
County Treasurer.

An Ugly Accident.
An ugly accident befel passenger train
No. 5 , last evening about 8 o'clock , jus
as the train was about to enter the yarc
limits. No lives were lost and no one
was seriously injured , but the property
damage will tfe considerable.
Freight train 150 had just shortly be
fore arrived from the west and its engine
and way-car had been disconnected from
the train , leaving a string of cars on a
side-track. While making up the third
section of 77 , cars were shunted againsl
this string of cars , which moved out ol
the yard onto the main line , without the
knowledge of the yard crew.
At this juncture No. 5 came bowling
along in the darkness at a lively pace ,
colliding with a coal car and grain car
with great force. The engine wentinto
the ditch , Engineer Dave Magner sus
taining injuries to his back not of a ser
ious nature ; Fireman Walt Godfrey es
caped with but slight injury. The tend
er was jammed into the mail car , the
end of which was badly damaged. Mail
Clerk Hollenbeck was squeezed by the
tender about the legs and was not able
to resume his run east on 2 , this morn
The two freight cars were considerably
smashed up and the baggage car slight
ly. Coal and wheat were scattered all
over the track in the immediate neigh
All the passengers escaped serious or
severe hurts , a number being bruised
and cut slightly in the severe shaking
up received.
The work of clearing the track was at
once commenced , and No. 3 was able to
pass without delay. No. 5 passed on its
way west about midnight.
Engineer 227 was greatly damaged ,
and the wonder is that the engine crew
escaped death.
Though a regrettable accident , in its
results it was most fortunate in that no
lives were lost and the injuries so slight.
Name a Good Ticket.
Pursuant to call , the Republican elect
ors of the city met in the city hall , last
Friday evening , and placed in nomina
tion a city ticket.
C.f. f. Babcock presided over the cau
cus , C. W. Barnes and E. O. Scott serv
ing as secretaries.
The caucus was largely attended and
its proceedings were most unanimous
and harmonious.
The only contest of the evening was
aetweeu F. D. Harding and J. A. Beyrer
for the clerkship , in which the latter
was victorious. Practically all the other
nominations were made by acclamation ,
as follows :
Mayor A. Barnett.
Clerk J. A. Beyrer.
Treasurer A. C. Ebert.
Engineer C.I. Hall.
Police Judge H. H. Berry.
Members of board of education D. A.
Lucas and Harmon Thompson.
Councilnien , First ward S. A. Moore ;
Second ward W. T. Coleman.
Communications were read from the
Abraham Lincoln club of Lincoln ex-
.euding an invitation to attend the club
Banquet in Lincoln on the 24th ; also
rrorn Chairman Teft of the state Repub-
ican central committee urging early and
careful organization of the Republican
forces ; recounting the encouragements
of the situation etc.
The Republican city committee is as
follows : First precinct , First ward , H.
H. Troth ; Second precinct , First ward ,
C. B. Gray ; First precinct , Second ward ,
F. M. Rathbun ; Second precinct , Second
end ward , William Smith.
The work of the caucus was quickly
Derformed and with a unanimity that
promises well for the success of the ex
cellent ticket thus placed in the field.
A Profitable Success.
The banquet held in the opera house ,
ast Saturday evening , by the members
of St. Patrick's parish , commemorative
of their patron saint , was a large and
jrofitable success. Supper was served
"rom 6 to 11:30 ; dancing was in progress
from 8:30 to 11:30 : , and both features
were generously patronized the net re
ceipts being in excess of one hundred
The ladies have been generally com-
ilimented upon the excellent and liberal
repast served it was notably fine.
The McCook orchestra provided the
music for the dancing hence that part
of the programme did not lack inspira
tion and zest.
Freight traffic is very heavy , just now :
Tuesday there were three sections of 77
n and out of McCook and two sections
r > f 63 , together with one extra train.
Wednesday and Thursday , there were
wo sections of both trains. There were

Referring to the approaching retire
ment of John Roxby from the Burlington

entionally placed the date one month
earlier than it should have. John will

more Fourth of July with us before re-
iring-to his farm and engaging in the

As soon as the war in Africa is over
and the Boers are defeated , if that should

will have agents in that country working
up emigration to the United States. As
the Boers have trekked before to escape
English rule it is reasoned they will dose
so again if they have the opportunity.

of people could do more to develop agri
culture and stock-raising in the west.

The much-talked-of line of the Eur-
ington from Toluca , in Yellowstone
counti , Montana , to Cody City , in the
Jig Horn basin , Wyoming , has been au-
horized by the directors of the Burling
ton and the sum of $2.000,000 appropri
ated for the work.- The new road will
be known as the Big Horji Southern ,
and work will be commenced at once on
its construction. The firm of Kilpatrick
Bros. & Collins , it is stated , has been
awarded the contract for the grading
work..The line will be about 200 miles
long. This line taps the newly devel
oped irrigated district , and brings one
western terminus of the Burlington very
near the Yellowstone park. " Some pro

ually be extended to Salt Lake City.

A. Barnett for Mayor.
The Republicans of McCook are to bt _
congratulated upon their nomination for
mayor. In A. Baruett they have secured
an ideal standard-bearer ; a business inai
whose reputation extends far beyond the
confines of the city that should take
pleasure in honoring him with the
mayoralty ; a clean and honorable am
upright citizen devoid of narrowness
and bigotry , known for his fair and lib
eral views and broad-mindedness.
Mr. Barnett is a man of individuality
of force and conviction. As a business
man of large interests in this city , he is
preeminently qualified to administer the
business affairs of this municipality. As
a lover of law and an upholder of public
morals , he will be able to give McCook
as clean an administration as can be
secured in fact and practice.
Though not seeking the nomination ,
and in fact only accepting it after most
urgent solicitation , Mr. Barnett will give
the business of the city the same careful ,
intelligent and energetic attention that
has made his personal affairs succeed
and prosper , being willing to make the
sacrifice from his business affairs for the
good of the city.

uions guardian of Mamie Shulse.
